The Rockets and Pacers faced off in Indiana on Monday night. Houston won the game 98-94 and were led by James Harden’s 28 points.
Three of Harden’s 28 points came on a step back three pointer he drained after he shook Victor Oladipo. The play made Oladipo look absolutely silly.

More impressive than the play itself, is the fact that Harden made the play without traveling. He often uses an extra step or two to create space.
Now that the referees know he can create space without taking an extra step, do we think they’ll start calling him for the extra steps?
